Altered Matchbox Shrine..........

Hi, Hope you don't mind but wanted to show you my tiny Matchbox Shrine, its ages since I've made one.


The Pink Lady (CV10) is from the fab Retro Cafe Art Gallery, who are kindly sponsoring Gingersnaps this month. The flowers were decoupaged which gives a little extra dimension.  The cardstock was a leftover piece and ribbon and beads from our local market.

Wishing you all a lovely day.  Take care, hugs Annette x
